Syria too little too late - opposition gains momemtum

President Assad of Syria has promised to lift emergency law.

He made the comments in a televised speech to his newly formed cabinet.
The lifting of the 48-year-old emergency law has been a key demand of the protesters.
Protesters rejected Assad's move as too little, too late. They said continuing arrests and a state media campaign to blame violence on armed gangs was deliberately inciting anger towards protesters. "The tone was different but there were no concrete reforms again; many still don't trust emergency law will be lifted," said an analyst in the capital, Damascus, who asked for anonymity. "If he had made this speech on 30 March, it may have been different, but now it is too late."

Syrian government is killing their people is very unfortunate and cruel this is to be condemned by everyone. Government is there to rule the people but not for killing the people so Syrian government leaders must have a peace talk with their people (protesters) in a peaceful manner then all the problems will be solved.
